I Like the Fun o meter. That is the truth.

Yea, Lucerne in 2016! Finally, a nearby LDRS that I might get to attend. That means the USAF will find a way for me to be conveniently out of state/country during this time frame...but I sure hope not.

Which Lucerne? Lucerne Valley, California.

Unfortunately, my LDRS was a bust. Rained all day Saturday and continued on Sunday. I packed it in for the long drive home without a single flight. I had been hoping to get my Level 1 with my Madcow Tembo. I think it is jinxed--ran out of time after competing at NARAM last year, too windy in Pittsburgh last fall, and now this.

Sorry to hear that CH. That's certainly a bummer...Hopefully your next launch date will work better for you! The weather has certainly become more extreme the last few years, and it seems that we are seeing more wet summers.
Tomorrow looks to be a better flying day....
Thursday, and Friday especially, were good flying days with the exception of clouds that passed through limiting our higher altitude flight waivers for periods of time during those days. We still got in more than 600 flights Friday! (That was great considering the electronic failures that occurred due to rain from the night before. We came up with a work around until the electronics dried out around 12:30, and then we able to get some serious flying done! Smile

It's been a very wet month in upstate New York. 4th wettest June on record for Syracuse, 7 inches so far with two (forecast rainy) days to go. Somehow we managed to dodge the rain for the local school rocketry competition, the club launch, a monthly urban bike ride, painting three rockets, and the first couple days (Thur-Fri) of LDRS. But luck ran out this weekend. My condolences to the flyers, especially those hoping to certify.
